Russia Crimea
Federation Council members listen to the Russian national anthem after voting in the Russian parliament's upper chamber in Moscow, Russia, Friday, March 21, 2014. The Federation Council voted unanimously to incorporate Crimea after Sunday's hastily called Crimean referendum, in which residents of the Black Sea peninsula overwhelmingly backed breaking off from Ukraine and joining Russia. The move, already approved by the lower house, is set to be completed later Friday with Russian President Vladimir Putin's signature. (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko)
